PUMPKINS AND MUMS AND DONATING HALLOWEEN CANDY


At this time of the year when we are transitioning into Fall and the days are getting cooler, I enjoy going grocery shopping to see what seasonal goodies are on sale.  

There were the pottery pumpkins in the same style I remember from last year. And then something new, painted pumpkins.  Not sure about these but everyone has different tastes and as my old Mum used to say to me, it would be a boring old world if we were all the same. Also maybe they were done with little kids in mind.

These are for cooking.

They were all very festive.

I enjoyed looking at the big pots of mums on sale.  These I do love with their pretty contrasting colors.





With Halloween coming up it will soon be time to start getting that candy in.  If you have any leftovers or would like to donate now, this link will show you how you can give your leftovers to our troops, veterans and first responders. The organizers ask that it be sent no later than November 8th if you are going to participate.

  2. Lots and lots of vivid colour there. Thank you. We don't really do Halloween here (though big business would like us to). I do love pumpkin though.

    1. We didn't have Halloween when I grew up in the UK either. Not sure if it is popular now. I'll have to ask our Brtisih blogging friends to put us in the know :)
